110 Judicial Nomination
To start, for the upcoming Supreme Court Judicial nomination, the only thing I care about is the nominee adheres to the constitution in rendering judicial opinion. When you get down to it, a Supreme Court justice has the easiest job specified in the United States Constitution. Once in the position you serve until you either quit or die. No continuous campaigning. A limited scope of duty.
From the United States Constitution:
The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.
The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;--to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;--to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;--to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;--to Controversies between two or more States;--between a State and Citizens of another State;--between Citizens of different States;--between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.
In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.
The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment; shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any State, the Trial shall be at such Place or Places as the Congress may by Law have directed.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
All decisions are supposed to determine judgments fall within the Constitution.
That said, when an opening on the court comes up it is the goal of the President to nominate the best candidate possible. The best candidate doing the job of strict constitutional interpretation. It does not matter their race, ethnic background, gender.
President alleged Joe “I am a corpse” Biden has said he will nominate a Black Woman to the position. I have no problem with that if that person is the best candidate. Biden has effectively said to potential nominees, take your close off so I can check your skin color and genitalia. And we though he was a hair sniffer! And look how good that Vice President choice is doing!
“Biden chose Harris as his VP because of the color of her skin and sex—not qualification. She’s been a disaster,” Gabbard wrote on Twitter. “Now he promises to choose Supreme Court nominee on the same criteria. Identity politics is destroying our country.”
If I were in Biden’s position I would look across the spectrum. If a black woman was the best, she would get nominated. Have a large pool of contestants then choose the one you want.
But if the only qualification is that it is to be a black woman and noting else, I suggest strongly Candice Owens.
